Atheist fundamentalist, evolution crackpot and heir of the slave trade Richard Dawkins last night shocked many of his disciples as he admitted that he couldn't be certain that God does not exist. This is the first time on record where Dawkins has hinted that he might not be an absolute authority on everything there is to know. Although he did reiterate that on a scale of 1-7 he was 6.9(?) that he didn't think God existed.
In what can at best be described as a lukewarm debate between Dawkins and 'Dr' Rowan Williams, nothing of note happened.
Williams, apparently an ex-believer in the Bible and current archbishop admitted that he thought that the Adam and Eve story, and the origin of sin, which underpins the entire Bible story of sin and salvation, was not was not neccessarily the truth "The writers of the Bible, inspired as I believe they were, were not inspired to do 21st-century physics; they were inspired to pass on to their readers what God wanted them to know." Many Bible believing Christians were no doubt shocked to hear such a revered man of the cloth imply that God 'watered down' the truth in the Bible. Williams continued to endorse the fable that man used to be pond scum.
Despite Dawkins wobble over the existance of God, he offered some comedy relief "What I can't understand is why you can't see the extraordinary beauty of the idea that life started from nothing - that is such a staggering, elegant, beautiful thing, why would you want to clutter it up with something so messy as a God?". Of course life does not start from nothing, and there is no evidence that it ever has. Children are first taught that life cannot come from nonlife, just prior to being taught that somehow life did come from nonlife!
So the end result of two evolutionists debating evolution was a decided victory for evolution. Now we can see why William Lane Craig has been rejected by Dawkins so many times!
Dawkins is continuing his tour of reason by giving a lecture at a London primary school
